Reel Life December 2021
With only a month to go till Christmas, now is the time to start planning your holiday fishing adventures.
In our mind, the best summer holidays revolve around fishing!
There are so many fishing options available in December; it’s a great time to target brown trout, rainbow trout, and salmon.
Don’t forget about the great eating perch that your sports fishing licence gives you access to – they come into their own in the summer months and are great for kids fishing expeditions.
The West Coast Fish & Game team has put this video together on fishing for perch; you can use these techniques anywhere in the country you can fish for perch.
NIWA’s seasonal outlook for December says high-pressure systems are becoming more common, temperatures are likely to be above average, and everything points to good weather for the summer break.
On their links above, each Fish & Game Region has loads of helpful information to help out with where to go fishing, how to fish their local area and many other great helpful hints.
They also have lots of info about upcoming events happening for anglers.
There are loads of fishing opportunities around the country, and remember, every bridge you cross is a fishing opportunity.
